Sniped!

I see Wesley Snipes has committed the only crime that a movie star can commit and get really nailed for: tax evasion.

But prosecutors, in their sentencing recommendation, said the jurors' decision "has been portrayed in the mainstream media as a 'victory' for Snipes. The troubling implication of such coverage for the millions of average citizens who are aware of this case is that the rich and famous Wesley Snipes has 'gotten away with it.' In the end the criminal conduct of Snipes must not be seen in such a light."


I thought he only committed a misdemeanor? When was the last time you saw someone get sent down for three years for first-time misdemeanor charges?

Some might ask if it's because he iz blak, I say it's because the state takes care of its own.

Fucking cunts.

The income tax is a protection racket, and the State must make an example of people caught trying to avoid the racket. Ultimately all taxes are paid at the end of the barrel of a gun - its makes little difference if the person holding the gun has 'legal' authority, or is a gangster. The result is the same. Your hard-earned cash is no longer in your pocket.

Unlike Ken Dodd. He may have left court a free man but he did have to pay the revenue.
